I had my sleeve on 9/12 and I just got put on puréed foods today because I am doing so well. I have not gotten sick, I have felt great since I left the hospital!!! I was thinking that too about hoping I still do well being able to tolerate stuff so well. Heck, right now I am earring puréed chili made with ground chicken and melted shredded cheese on top!!!!

I'm 9 weeks out and have had a similiar experience. The only issue I have is when I eat too much or too fast. I logged all my food during the first few weeks, but stopped for a stretch and that's when I began to worry about my ability to consume anything. Would this be my downfall in the long run? I was still losing weight, but I began to imagine a myriad of ways that I could screw the whole thing up. So, I started tracking my food again, this time using myfitnesspal.com (free, easy) and I now feel much more in control. Using a food tracker helps me monitor many more aspects of my diet than when I was just trying to keep track of protien in my head and avoid carbs. I'm now more conscious of sodium, Calcium and other important factors in my overall health. Will I always track my food? Probably not. Right now if my weekends are busy and I don't get a chance to log my food with my phone or laptop I don't sweat it.

Given that most of us have tried many times in the past to lose weight and failed, our capacity to doubt ourselves is enormous. Ignore the doubt. We can't trick ourselves into thinking we can't do this. :)

Hey girl we were done on the same day. I've been on soft foods for a few days. No problem going down. I still eat to fast sometimes so I'm trying to be careful with that. How are you feeling after or during eating?

When I drink a large sip of drink, I feel it going down to my stomach. I was sleeved 9/20 so I don't know if it's normal or not. Go see doc Wednesday and I'll ask.

I get that same "stuck" feeling too but mine can last up to 20-30 min. I think I'm taking too big of bites or eating too quickly. A few times I've puked up about a teaspoonful or 2 back up :/

Oh wow, I haven't thrown up or don't ever even feel like I want to-it just feels stuck for a few seconds & makes me lean forward & kind of pay my chest... It's so annoying - I hope it subsides for all of us soon...

My first few days post op I could feel everything too... Down the esophagus and into the stomach and through. It went away after a few days. I think it's normal (and kind of cool ;p)

I do not like cottage cheese. What would be something good to eat in its place?

ricotta cheese

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
